Gladys's story

Dear Kiva community, Gladys is a 40-year-old mom of two school-going children who is a hard-working mom from a remote village in the Litein area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start by providing them with a good-quality life.

Gladys has a farm where she grows different crops and raises livestock. She also earns some income from a personal business.

The Litein area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 40,000 KES loan through Kiva field partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and expand her business.

Being a poor woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging. Gladys feels relieved knowing there are institutions, such as Kiva, that help enterprising women like herself.

She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and to secure her family’s future. Gladys is a borrower who has a good credit history and is worth supporting.
